Charles’ research will focus on international film co-production, that will develop a potential framework for film co-production strategies for feature film production in the ASEAN region. The outcome of this research could be a possible adaptation for implementation by the governments in Southeast Asia, to enhance the policies and procedures in order to make co-productions between these countries seamless and benefit industry players embarking on business and co-production ventures. Research areas include film co-production, film policy framework and regulations, copyright conventions and Southeast Asian aesthetics.
